Paper Abstract

MEGARA (Multi-Espectrógrafo en GTC de Alta Resolución para Astronomía) is the future optical Integral-Field Unit (IFU) and Multi-Object Spectrograph (MOS) for the GTC 10.4m telescope. The spectrograph is currently being integrated in the laboratory for a pre-shipping review in September 2016. This paper presents the current status and final performance of the spectrograph mechanics and opto-mechanics, composed of the mechanisms and the large optomechanical elements mounts.
